Keeping with the Persians for a bit longer I also painted up a couple of units of javelin armed light cavalry. These would usually be pitted against other light cavalry such as the bow armed ones from Monday. They can also keep moving forward peppering the enemy and then retreating out of harms way whilst the two armies come to grips.
I am assuming Lee won't have much in the way of cavalry in his Roman army so I expect these and the Saka to be a bit of a pain if I use them with my Macedonian based army.
With only a few figures a base, the basing takes on an even more important role. Here the mostly sparse style I am using really stands out. Much more than on the figure laden phalanx blocks.
Again Baccus have provided wonderful looking figures that needed little clean up work. Just twelve figures to the two units, this will be it for them for the time being. I will probably need more once I start to fill out the army but that will be some time yet, still plenty to go at from the army pack I bought a few weeks back.
